Higginson: Re-elect County Clerk Joan White


I am writing this letter in support of re-electing Joan White as our County Clerk. I have been an attorney in active private practice in San Juan County since 1980 and first met Joan since 1991 when she was working for John Linde before he assumed the bench as our first Superior Court judge.


As a trial attorney, I continued to work closely with Joan when she became a deputy clerk in 1993, and then when she was elected as the County Clerk in 2007 and again in 2011.

Joan handles her job with skill and competently juggles the many aspects of her position, which vary from processing passport applications to maintaining the court filings. She is thorough, diligent, and dedicated. Our county is well-served by Joan and we should retain her as our County Clerk for another four years. There is no substitute for her experience.
